Therefore, the mobile apps industry has grown significantly in the last decade. To make the mobile apps industry develop further, knowledge on the elements needed in maximizing the user experience (UX) is necessary. The UX analysis in developing mobile apps has to be conducted in order to create an app that matches with user's preferences. This research focuses on one of the categories related to health, which is health-tracker apps. Based on the preliminary survey conducted, it was found that two of the most popular apps are the Google fit and Myfitnesspal. Thus, this research takes both apps as the objects of the research.
